Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Star player’s absence could give Blues the edge



Saturday brings a massive English Premier League encounter as Premier League Champions Chelsea play host Manchester City.

Manchester City are currently joint top of the League table and come into this match after winning eight of their nine games this League season.

Pep Guardiola’s team have performed pretty well going forward and have netted an incredible 16 goals in their last three Premier league matches.

However, Argentine striker Sergio Aguero will miss the clash after being involved in an Auto crash on Thursday.

The Argentina international striker has netted seven goals and assisted another three in all competitions this League season.

His absence from the Manchester City squad could swing the match in Chelsea’s favour. The West Londoners are now 6/4 favourites, with Manchester City at 17/10 and the match draw at 12/5.

Even without Sergio Kun Aguero, there could be a lot of goals in this match. Records indicate there have been no fewer than three goals in the last five encounters between the two sides.

The attack of Antonio Conte’s team was purring in their away victories at Spanish side Atletico Madrid in midweek.

Belgian Eden Hazard and Spaniard Alvaro Morata played together for the very first time and looked very good together.

Spain international Alvaro Morata has now scored four goals in his last two matches. He’s favourite to score the first goal at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s team would draw level with leaders Manchester City if they manage to get the three points.
